Welcome to the Homepage of the Global South Studies Center Cologne!

The Global South is characterised by rapid socioeconomic, cultural and political change whose impacts are felt throughout the world.

Typical signs of the upheavals involved include increasing economic interconnectedness, growing social inequality and destruction of natural resources. The countries worst affected are those long labelled ‘developing’ countries from a Northern perspective. The GSSC aims to investigate and highlight possible causes and consequences of these processes of change.


We congratulate GSSC-member Anne Storch for receiving the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize, Germany`s most important research award. The Leibniz Programme aims to improve the working conditions of outstanding researchers, expand their research opportunities, relieve them of administrative tasks, and help them employ particularly qualified early career researchers. A maximum of €2.5 million is provided per award. UoC press release
